McCain backtracks on amnesty & it’s not even 2016

August 24, 2014

Trust the untrustworthy McCain at your own peril

Under the headline, “McCain retreats on immigration reform,” the daily runs this report and video clip from McCain’s interview with Brahm Resnik on KPNX 12 News’ Sunday Square Off,* which aired this morning at 8 a.m. 

The entire Sunday Square off show can be viewed here.

McCain was interviewed on the growing ISIS threat, in which he also bears culpability. Check out the deplorable photos under the link. They were posted on GOP the Daily Dose and show McCain secretly meeting last year with the head of ISIS and those he called “brave fighters risking their lives for freedom.”

Resnik: Let’s move to immigration real quick. I heard you on the radio the other day saying, “There’s no reform now, immigration reform, without complete control of the border. Have you stepped back from where you were a year ago?”

McCain: “We need to assure the American people that the border is secure.  People in AZ are so cynical about the promises that have been made about a secure border.  Doing the right things and spending the right money, we can have a 90 percent effective control of the  border within two years.”

Resnik: “So that comes first?”

McCain: “I think it’s going to have to.”

Resnik: “So this changes the discussion?”

McCain: “To a certain degree.”

Experts: America facing imminent terror threat

August 23, 2014

McCain met with the head of ISIS on a secret trip to Syria last year and promised them weapons, training, and funding in their war against Bashir Assad

Following the gruesome decapitation of American photojournalist James Foley, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee warns that ISIS or Islamic State terrorists are working to develop the capability of blowing up a major American city.

Sen. Inhofe issued the dire warning on Oklahoma City’s Fox 25. He blames policy decisions of the Obama administration and cuts in defense spending for putting the country in this extremely dangerous situation.

There is  no leadership coming from the White House. Within minutes of saying he was “appalled” by the vicious beheading, a seemingly disconnected Obama returned to the Martha’s Vineyard golf course to resume his vacation, tossing aside criticism from world leaders and the American people.

In a particularly shocking turn of events, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced his office will be opening a criminal investigation into the grisly beheading as though it was an ordinary street crime and not an international act of aggression against the United States and its citizens.

The Obama administration has steadfastly refused to identify radical Islamic terrorists as enemy combatants. Some of the Gitmo detainees released by Obama have joined the Islamic State jihad movement. The ultimate goal of the extremists is a worldwide caliphate, forcing Islam or death and replacing political systems with a single theocratic one world government under Muslim domination.

And thanks to the liberal polices promoted by Obama and Republicrat Senators such as McCain, Flake and Kyl, the U.S. still doesn’t have control of our sovereign border, nor do we know who blends in with the Mexican invaders.

In a post complete with numerous photos, the GOP Daily Dose reminds us that John McCain met with the head of ISIS on a secret trip to Syria last year and promised them weapons, training, and funding.

Former U.S. Rep. Allen West reports OTMs (Other than Mexicans) routinely being assisted by drug cartels are Islamic terrorists gaining entrance into the U.S. via our porous southern border. 

Breitbart News headlines  “Former. Homeland Security Adviser: “Very, very true ISIS may have crossed border.” Seeing Red AZ addressed this serious issue just days ago.

WND has sounded the alarm for years, writing “From Sept. 11, 2001, to 2006, the Department of Homeland Security reported a 41 percent increase in arrests along the Texas/Mexico border of “special-interest aliens” – including aliens from Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Pakistan, Cuba, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Russia, Yemen, Albania, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan.

This is increasingly serious business. If our government isn’t paying attention, we damn well better be. Repeatedly sending status quo politicians back to Washington has potentially mind-boggling consequences.


Huppenthal requests $1million to “embrace” illegal kids

August 22, 2014

John Huppenthal, the wildly erratic state superintendent of public instruction, is requesting the federal government pony up $1 million for educating the illegal alien children being housed in Arizona. They are among the tens of thousands who have flooded into the United States from Central America.

On Wednesday, Huppenthal sent this letter to Obama’s education secretary Arne Duncan asking for the financial aid, which he calculates at the rate of 202 students x $5,082 per student.

“We want to be positioned to do the best job we can to embrace those children,” he said during a press conference. “But, at the same time, we want to send a notice out that we expect to be compensated for those students.”

Huppenthal, who previously claimed conservative credentials as a candidate, has cozied up to Obama’s educrat point man Arne Duncan. This press release from Huppenthal was from chummier times as the alleged Republican trumpeted the fact that he was escorting liberal Duncan around the state.

Instead of doing the job he was elected to do, Huppenthal has spent a great deal of his taxpayer paid work time posting anonymous, insulting comments on blogs —- including Seeing Red AZ —- first denying his actions and then giving a tearful apologetic press conference. Watch the CBS TV 5 coverage in which he admitted his actions.

Now, rather than protecting Arizona’s Constitutional requirement for local control of our district schools, Huppenthal is shamefully pushing policies intended to cede control of every facet of our education system to federal bureaucrats as he promotes the disastrous federal overreach once known as Common Core. Hoping Arizona’s citizens wouldn’t notice, Huppenthal and Gov. Jan Brewer conspired to rename the unpopular federal overreach which suddenly morphed into “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.”

Conservative syndicated columnist, Michelle Malkin who has devoted the past two years to sounding the alarm on Common Core, supports Diane Douglas in Tuesday’s primary election. Read her endorsement.


Blatantly false claims against AG Horne disproved

August 20, 2014

Falsehoods misrepresented as fact in widely distributed emails

Many of us are recipients of a quasi-blog publication to which none of us have subscribed and there is no comment section.  Still we mysteriously receive it and its often skewed version of facts, constructed to promote a specific political agenda and sent out under the improbable name of “azstatesmen.”  The messages are reposted on a another well-read Arizona blog.

Just days ago the emailed message was titled “Tom Horne refuses to enter gay marriage debate.” The writers accuse Arizona’s conservative Attorney General of  “refusing to file a brief in court defending traditional marriage.” The dishonest contrivance continues with the assertion that “Horne is a RINO on everything except illegal immigration, and even there he’s a Johnny-come-lately who has been barely active.”

These dishonest smears cannot stand.

Fortunately, Frosty Taylor, a retired but still working journalist, with standards galore is in charge of the Maricopa County Republican Committee MCRC Briefs —- sent out on a daily basis. Frosty is relied upon as a steadfast beacon of integrity.

Take a few minutes to read the truth as posted on (MCRC) Briefs and available here, where the links indisputably clarify the issue:

Setting the Record Straight: Tom Horne Refutes Allegations that he “refuses to enter gay marriage debate,” as circulated by American Post-Gazette this week: “This is total fabrication,” Horne said. “There are two challenges in Federal District Court as to Arizona’s constitutional provision that marriage is between a man and a woman and I am defending both of them. In one, I have filed a pleading in which you can read our arguments in favor of the constitutionality of Arizona’s prohibition of same-sex marriages.

See http://www.electtomhorne.com/traditionalmarriage/  There is a case to which the state was not a party dealing with a divorce.  We recently received notice of that because the constitutionality of the provision is an issue, and we decided to intervene to defend the constitutionality of Arizona’s prohibition of gay marriage.  We never refused to intervene, and in fact, decided that we would intervene.

In the Hawaii case they refer to, the Court said, at paragraph 15: “The question before this Court is not whether the State of Arizona allows same-sex marriage or divorce, but whether the laws of the State of Arizona allow a marriage, lawfully entered into in another state, between two persons the foreign state formally recognized at the time of the marriage as male and female, to be dissolved.”   “Where ever the constitutionality of the ban on same-sex marriage has been at issue, I have actively defended Arizona’s ban. The Post-Gazette story is a malicious lie, as you can verify by reading the pleading at http://www.electtomhorne.com/traditionalmarriage/. Then click on http://www.electtomhorne.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Connolly-59-DF-Response-to-MSJ-1.pdf 

Seeing Red AZ addresses the allegation that Attorney General Horne is a “Johnny-come-lately” to immigration issues. Read Chaos erupts over TUSD’s review of ethnic studies program. Horne was out in front and taking heat for his strong pro-American views during his two terms as AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction from 2003 to 2011. He was even burned in effigy by his illegal supporting detractors. As Attorney General so-called DREAMers protested outside his office after he sued a Phoenix-area community college to stop it from charging in-state tuition to illegals. 

Facts are pesky things.  They can be substantiated. Deliberate deception does more harm to the messenger than the one being maligned.

 


Libertarian spoilers in key GOP senate races

August 15, 2014

As Americans who are paying attention are all too aware, it is imperative for the GOP to regain control of the U.S. Senate. With Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid playing hand-in-glove with a president who disregards congress as irrelevant and has repeatedly made good on his vow to use the power of executive actions to bypass the Republican-controlled House, the urgency of winning the midterm senatorial elections is undeniable 

But Republicans face a substantial problem, and it isn’t coming from the left. Game-playing Libertarians present a new wild card, with the potential of gumming up these vital elections by siphoning votes in crucial races from Republican candidates.

A key 2014 race is in New Hampshire, where Libertarian candidate Gardner Goldsmith is complicating Republican former senator Scott Brown’s bid to unseat Democrat incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Brown trails Shaheen by 10 percentage points (42 – 52) with Goldsmith taking 2 points and 9 percent of voters still undecided, according to most recent polling.

Although Goldsmith’s 2 percentage points might appear too small to decide the race, politicos contend New Hampshire voters have a history of supporting independent candidates, which means that Goldsmith could take a hefty chunk of the undecided vote and decisively block any hope of a Brown victory.

North Carolina is also dealing with a Libertarian spoiler. Sean Haugh a perennial candidate, open-borders supporter and pizza delivery guy is attempting to throw ice water on Republican plans to defeat Sen. Kay Hagan, considered one of the most vulnerable Democrat incumbent senators.

This Aug. 7, 2014 Rasmussen survey shows Thom Tillis edging Hagan 45-to-40 percent, with Haugh taking 6 percent of the vote, though other polls show Haugh hitting 11 percent. The odds of the Libertarian winning are nil, but his ability to botch the election is formidable. Those odds increase should he qualify for the senatorial debate series which begin Sept. 3. 

The Libertarian Party goes to great lengths to mask its spoiler image, oddly claiming it has broader appeal.  “Gay marriage, less taxes, there’s overlap there,” Libertarian Party President Wes Benedict recently claimed in a Fox news report. “From a marketing perspective, we want to distinguish ourselves from Democrats and Republicans. But we do want to attract voters from both sides,” he admits.

This Washington Post July report provides an overview of Libertarian efforts to swing control of the U.S. Senate away from the GOP.

Here in Arizona, Sen. Jeff Flake and Attorney General challenger Mark Brnovich run as Republicans but have roots deep in Libertarian soil. Both have worked for the Libertarian — not Republican — Goldwater Institute.  It should come as no surprise that Flake supports Brnovich’s candidacy.


Pay more for gas? Radical U.S. Chamber thinks you should

August 13, 2014

U.S. Chamber is not a benign business group, but a massive liberal entity

If you think the price of a fill-up at the local service station is steep, Thomas J. Donohue will not be your favorite guy. Donohue, the President and CEO of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, is concerned about the nation’s infrastructure. So much so, in fact, he’s written a piece titled, “Let’s pave the way for infrastructure funding,” in which he opines that it’s time to “raise the gas tax.”

The U.S. Chamber believes, he writes, that the simplest, most straightforward way to fix the Highway Trust Fund is to raise the gas tax, which hasn’t been done in nearly 20 years. A modest, phased-in increase —- plus indexing to inflation —- would shore up the fund. This proposal has gained the support of labor and key industries, including trucking and shipping. We believe that motorists could get behind it as well if Congress were serious about ensuring that the money goes to the most essential projects.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, says Donohue, is calling on Congress to seriously consider a long-term revenue solution this fall, with the goal of creating —-  and seizing —- the opportunity to act before year-end. Time is short and the consequences of inaction are high.

GasBuddy.com compiles and updates the lowest and highest per gallon prices in the Valley. Options include Regular, Midgrade, Premium and Diesel. Tracking prices over the past nine months, with a few peaks and valleys, the rise in the cost of a fill-up is unmistakable.

Displaying an immense disregard for Americans still struggling in a severely depressed economy, the Chamber is, in a platitude-laced screed, supportive of a continued flood of illegals to compete with American citizens for fewer jobs, advocating for earned “lawful status for the undocumented with no future bar to citizenship.”

In plain English that means the illegal labor profiteers desire a continued flood of low-cost labor, regardless of the consequences to American workers. In May, Donohue issued a threat and ultimatum to the Republican Party: Either pass amnesty or don’t bother fielding a presidential candidate in 2016.  Rick Moran covered Donahue’s blatant, partisan extremism for PJ Media.

The U.S. Chamber is also supportive of Common Core, Obama’s federal overreach into America’s education system, driven by a mindset that educational control via federal bureaucrats is preferable to state and local oversight guided by input from parents, teachers and neighborhood school boards.

And who knew the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a International Affairs Division ‘headquartered near the White House,” which “leads the business community’s efforts to shape global policy”? The division is headed by a guy with the unlikely name of Myron Brilliant. But then again, it is the brilliant and all-powerful OZ-like Chamber.


Islamic terror: U.S. must be prepared despite lack of leadership

August 11, 2014

Barack Obama is not one to let world crises get in the way of his vacation plans. Despite Islamic militants overrunning Iraq, taking control of one of the area’s largest dams and forcing religious minorities out of the city of Mosul under threat of conversion or death, the Obama’s arrived in Martha’s Vineyard as scheduled, where they and their entourage are luxuriating at a 17-room, $12 million home. Obama wasted no time in getting out to the links to indulge in his favorite pastime of golf with his pals.

As the leader of the free world, Obama’s narcissism is appalling. Americans are also foolishly disconnected, fuming over a news break that interrupted an inane TV program to announce the beginning of U.S. air strikes in Iraq against ISIS which the terrorists now want to be known simply as the Islamic State.

The 7,000+ miles that separate us from this hotbed of terror should not lull us into complacency. Young children —- future perpetrators of genocide —- are being trained in the Mideast as we anxiously await the networks prime time lineup for the coming season.

Even the relentless liberal lunacy of the AZ República’s Linda Valdez as she pushes for what she dishonestly refers to as “nonpartisan” primaries —- actually a re-christened “Top 2,” rejected by voters just two years ago —- fades to dark when juxtaposed against the savagery that has the “religion of peace” in its grasp and is moving forward with its plans for world domination.

Children are being groomed to be hate-filled, jihadist murderers for the Caliphate, the means of worldwide enforcement of Islamic Sharia law.  A father coaches his 7-year-old son, raised in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia to hold the severed head of a mutilated Syrian soldier, proudly declaring, “That’s my boy!” The UK’s Daily Mail has a full report.

Pay attention. In addition to the domination of the Middle East, including the total annihilation of the region’s sole democracy Israel, they have Europe, Australia, Asia and North America, including the United States in their sights.

We can no longer afford distractions and complacency. This San Diego ABC 10 News report, “Terrorist Group Setting Up Operations Near Border,” is from May 2011. Watch it.  The 7,000+ mile expanse is suddenly much closer to home. Also, check out “Hezbollah on our doorstep: Radical Muslims in border towns.”
